“It matters to me, Mays. It matters a lot. I don't like seeing some other guy touching you. Not when it should be me touching you”
"Who gives a damn about their reputation? Oh, that would be me! Especially since mine had gone straight to hell in the span of thirty minutes".
Maysie Ardin is soaking up the summer before her junior year of college, shopping, hanging by the pool and shopping some more. But when her black belt in spending lands her in trouble with her parents, she is forced to take a second job at a local bar to dig herself out of a deep financial pit.
She thought she’d be miserable. But then Maysie didn’t count on Jordan Levitt, the hot, pierced and tattooed, drum playing bartender who also happens to be very interested in her. And the feelings are totally mutual.
It had the makings of the perfect romantic set up. Boy meets girl. Boy likes girl. Boy has girlfriend? Okay, maybe not.
But attraction is a hard thing to ignore and soon Jordan and Maysie find themselves in the middle of a gossip induced firestorm. Maysie has to learn whether she can set aside her fear of public disapproval in order to be with the one she wants. Or will she let the opinions of others dictate her life and her heart?
Let me start by saying I'm a bit of a book snob, I only really read a book if its got 4.00 or more of a score on goodreads - unless someone reccommends it to me. My best Friend Ashleigh Morgan reccommended this and I'm so glad she did *CHEESY SMILE*
The blurb tells you everything you need to know in regards to the storyline (but I might just be trying to get out of writing a blurb of my own because I SUCK at writing blurbs!)
Maysie is a typical New Adult - she is in College, trying to find her identity, working to pay off debt and in between trying to have a good time.
Jordan is one HOT piece of ass. He is sexy, funny, loving, bad-boy-but-good-boy-at-heart and just Scrummy :)
This book had me laughing out loud in places, going all Gosh you make my heart go all Squishy in others and getting all hot and bothered in between.
My only complaint is that at points I found Maysie to be rather immature and too concerned with other peoples opinions but that might just be my personality.
“You're right, baby. We began out of something ugly. But what we became was something beautiful. I just wish I could make you see that.”
“Why, Maysie? What more do you need me to tell you? Haven't I already handed my fucking guts to you on a platter? What else do you need to hear?”
“I'm sorry if I pissed you off.I'm sorry if I acted like a fucker.But I'm not sorry for chasing off that pansy ass that used to have what's mine.Because you're my girl now and I won't have that asshole sniffing around where he doesn't belong.”
If you are looking for an easy read with tons of angst and sexual tension - this is the book for you. I read it in 2 days (4 sittings) and laughed hard.
